Ziemke honors Honda’s 2 millionth Hoosier-made vehicle milestone

first_imgStatehouse— State Rep. Cindy Ziemke (R-Batesville) recently honored Honda Manufacturing of Indiana with a resolution at the Indiana Statehouse for producing its 2 millionth vehicle in Greensburg and its contributions to the community.According to Ziemke, Honda produced more than 2 million vehicles since production began in October of 2008, with workers building the milestone car, a crystal black pearl CR-V, on May 31, 2019. “I remember in 2006 when it was announced that Honda was coming to Greensburg,” Ziemke said. “It was the biggest news. They were a big deal then and they are a bigger deal now as they continue to be one of the largest contributors and assets to our local economy. Gov. Mitch Daniels said bringing Honda to Indiana was one of his most significant achievements, and my district and I are grateful they were able to come to Greensburg.”Ziemke stated that Honda’s contribution to the community continues, as the company has announced a $4 million expansion that will add 54 jobs to the plant’s operations and expand the Honda-Greensburg portfolio to include the production of the CR-V Hybrid, which began being assembled this month.“The products we make in Indiana are among Honda’s most popular and most successful,” said Tim Myers, senior vice president of HMIN. “And we’re leading the way in electrification, which is the future of automotive manufacturing.”Honda Manufacturing of Indiana employs more than 2,500 Hoosiers, represents more than $1 billion in capital investment and has the capacity to produce 250,000 vehicles a year.last_img read more

5 players score as No. 5 Syracuse shuts out No. 8 Boston College, 6-0

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Five Syracuse players scored and Borg van der Velde pitched another shutout as No. 5 Syracuse (6-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) buried No. 8 Boston College (4-1, 0-1 ACC), 6-0, on Friday evening in Newton, Massachusetts. The onslaught wasn’t immediate. Boston College applied some pressure on the SU defense early but never broke through. By the end of the game, BC had five shots.Just over six minutes into the game, Elaine Carey broke the tie and put the Orange up, 1-0. From then, SU hit the gas pedal. Laura Hurff doubled Syracuse’s lead 23:49 into the game, and one minute and 11 seconds later, Jennifer Bleakney found the back of the net again, cueing a BC timeout. Caroline Cady added a goal of her own making it 4-0, and both teams headed to half.Courtesy of John Quackenbos/BC AthleticsAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe second half provided much of the same for both teams. Carey’s second goal and a Lies Lagerweij blast on a penalty corner put the game out of reach. Lagerweij’s goal might have been the most important for SU, as it was the Orange’s first penalty corner goal since it’s very first attempt of the season. After 35 misses in a row, Syracuse found a second penalty corner goal. In net, van der Velde picked up her sixth-straight shutout, making some key saves, including a sprawling attempt on a penalty corner that appeared to go in. Next up, SU is on the road at No. 21 Albany on Sunday at 1 p.m. Comments Published on September 8, 2017 at 7:47 pm Contact Andrew: aegraham@syr.edu | @A_E_Grahamlast_img read more

Manchester United 2-0 Perth Glory: Marcus Rashford, James Garner on target

first_imgManchester United kicked off their pre-season campaign with a 2-0 victory over Perth Glory at Optus Stadium.Marcus Rashford broke an hour of Perth resistance with an instinctive first-time volley, before substitute James Garner wrapped up the win with his second touch with a 20-yard drive five minutes from time.Rashford and Paul Pogba were among the 11 half-time changes made by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who handed debuts to summer signings Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in either half, both of whom impressed. United, aided by pacey debutant James – who tormented the Perth defence down the left flank – dominated possession from the outset but took 19 minutes to fashion a chance as captain Ashley Young lashed a free-kick into the side-netting from 25 yards.After Andreas Pereira and Anthony Martial fired shots wide, Jesse Lingard introduced himself to the game just before the half-hour mark with a curling shot towards the top corner which drew a fine save from Perth goalkeeper Liam Reddy at full stretch.Perth’s forays forward were few and far between but, when they did manage to cross the halfway line, they were swiftly dealt with by Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe, who was back in United colours after spending last season on loan at Aston Villa.Unable to find the breakthrough before the break, Solskjaer went ahead with his planned wholesale changes at the interval and they had the desired effect as a mix of youthful exuberance and top talent piled the pressure on Perth.Pogba dragged wide when presented with an early sight of goal and Mason Greenwood lashed an effort into the side-netting before Rashford made the breakthrough on 60 minutes, the England international watching Pogba’s flick fall over his shoulder before lashing a first-time volley beyond Reddy.Greenwood should have doubled United’s lead instantly after being played through on goal by Juan Mata, dragging a shot wide with just the ‘keeper to beat. But with United firmly in control, a second soon followed as 18-year-old Garner pounced on the loose ball in midfield and fired a crisp strike into the bottom corner.Greenwood then saw an effort impressively tipped onto the post by goalkeeper Tando Velaphi but the result was in hand as United got up and running with a win in Australia.
